states. that's a mandate. it's unthinkable that any candidate can win anywhere close to that. obama won a pretty impressive victory even without a serious third party candidate, he did not get 51% of the popular vote. he won 26 states to romney's 24 states. we'll see time after time very, very close elections. we need to rethink the negotiations of mandates and say this person won the presidency. they need to go forward with that agenda. >> what about the republicans? are they going to do a big rethink here? >> yes, and more than one. it was interesting that the republican governors happened to be meeting this week in las vegas when this news about the interesting comments that romney made to his donors that we just saw and the republican governors, bobby jindal of louisiana did not miss five seconds before they really denounced what romney was saying. the republicans have a lot of things to think about, not of which is their growing problem with hispanic voters. that is the big growing group in this country. republicans are still largely a party of white people and older white people.
with america's immediate neighbors. last year the obama administration blocked an extension to the keystone excel pipeline that would help deliver oil from canada's tar sands, eyely controversy bull productive sands to the gulf of mexico. largely on environmental grounds. now the state department is reviewing the pipeline route. the pipeline will likely get approval and get built. either way, the energy relationship between the u.s. and canada will continue to grow. and while president obama meets with his newly elected mexican counter part this month, a major topic will be obama's goil goal for immigration reform. it's a domestic issue with regional economic implications for both the united states and mexico. so president obama has got a lot to think about. joining me now is fareed zakaria. he is host of "gps." you understand the economy and foreign affairs. let's talk about europe first of all. you get the impression that china was the biggest economic threat to the united states. but if europe doesn't get its act together, the trade between europe and the u.s. is greater. should the pres
on the crisis. joining me is the former state department spokesman p.j. raleigh. are president obama's words strong enough in his defense of israel? >> absolutely. as he said in his remarks, no country should have to tolerate a barrage of missiles that put its entire population or a substantial percentage of its population at risk. israel has a right to respond. that said, obviously, how it responds and how it is viewed in this region, a fragile rv region given the events the last couple of years is very important. israel has some difficult calculations to make going forward. >> how about in terms of how chose we are to a middle east war, and if that happens what are the chances of u.s. involvement? how might that play out? >> that's the risk. we have a growing gaza crisis, a civil war in syria next door, unquiet along the israeli/egyptian border, substantial unrest in jordan. any flare-up in one of these, has potential to spread across to the other. most importantly, you have a fragile, you know, political systems. you have countries in transition. the populations and politics are more popu
it is his fault. >> reporter: just after president obama was inaugurated, we spent time in king county. >> i just ask god that he would truly connect with him so he would know what god's heart was for the united states of america. >> reporter: you told us four years ago that you hoped the lord would help barack obama. >> yes. >> reporter: do you think that happened? >> it doesn't appear so. >> reporter: and then there was something we heard before. what bothers you about president obama's first term. >> that he lied to us about where he was born. to me he just seems dishonest. >> reporter: he said he was born in hawaii and he's said that for a long time. and i wonder if you have heard that and if you have, why don't you believe that? >> i just don't believe anything he says. >> reporter: there are certainly people in king county that still don't believe the president about his country of birth and they don't believe him about his faith. he says he's a devout chris, but doubts about that exist. >> i think he's a muslim. >> back at the basketball game, it was notable that there were more peopl
, embracing reform, and president obama is praising the change. secretary of state hillary clinton and the president paid tribute to the country's most famous freedom fighter who, until recently, was a prisoner in her own home. school children waved american flags at the obama motorcade shouting "i love democracy!" it was an amazing scene in a country where just a few years ago saying something like that could get you thrown in jail. he also sat down with the country's first civilian leader, a symbolic nod to the government's initial moves towards reform, and he spoke about the university where 1988 student activists first rose to fight for change. >> the flickers of progress that we have seen must not be extinguished. they must be strengthened. they must become a shining north star for all this nation's people. and your success in that effort is important to the united states as well as to me. >> and he promised to continue to befriend the government's efforts at change. >> i said in my inauguration address, we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist. and over

the election, you don't like obama, that is probably true. isn't it important had a we are the united states of america? you feel a sense of obligation that we have to stay united? >> i think that is cruel irony. for people like and you that are committed to the principles of liberty and freedom as envisioned by our founders, when you look at it in the context of the governor's statement that he sees no reason to change the union, i think we're face with the reality that the union has fundamentally changed. we've got a federal government that treats states like texas as a cash cow, that has no regard for the sovereignty streets and treats us like a subdivision of the federal government. we have seen the transformation of what the union is and our organization is committed here to preserve and freedom and independence of texas. >> sean: explain constitutionally, you cite a lot of this in materials, where you see the right to do this if you get enough signatures and what would you like to happen next? >> first off, let's take it one step. the petition that is going to the white house will acco
on september 11th when this attack occurred. now, they all knew this was terror attack and so did our state department. david petraeus is not the only key actor in all of this. we have hillary clinton, eric holder and we have president obama. what did they know? when did they know it? injecting me now jay from law and justice and former c.i.a. covert operations officer and president of diligence llc, mike baker. welcome to hannity. what do you think. >> i think the first thing we had an october surprise in the election but we didn't find out about it until november. the situation with general petraeus while tragic for his family is not really the issue. its horrible set of events. but we had a chief c.i.a. director, chief spy for america so to speak, compromised. the attorney general of the united states knew this in september and failed to the tell the president of the united states that his c.i.a. director was being investigated by the f.b.i. i cannot imagine eric homelander would have done this. it was dereliction of duty. >> sean: he might not have done it. he may have told the presiden
house asking that certain states be allowed to secede from the union now that president obama has been re-elected. texas was the leader of the pack with one petition counting 70,000 signatures by yesterday afternoon. jon stewart weighed in. >> i think i can best express how i feel about these states and people in the words of the great william wonka. stm. >> stop. don't. come back. [ cheers and applause ] >> at least now i'm beginning to understand why southern states were so hesitant to get rid of the confederate flag. it's like keeping your fat pants after you lose some weight. you're happy for now with the new you, but pretty soon you're going to need those fat pants again! pizza! oh, demino's in staten island. >> then there's the issue of the latino vote which many republicans say they need if they have any hope of winning back the white house. listen to brian fisher, spokesman for conservative american family association they call themselves and you realize why the gop's problems with latinos run very deep. wait until you hear this guy. >> hispanics are not democrats, don't vote d
who i'm related to. and she honestly believed that obama was not born in the united states or think that's an open question. that it is a socialist agenda. and i think that people in this bubble really did think that romney was certain to win because everybody they knew supported him and opposed obama. it's like the flip side of the old unfair joke about pauline kael who said, "how could nixon win in '72? everybody i know voted for mcgovern." apparently, she never actually said that. but we know the attitude it exemplifies. the right is now in that bubble. everybody they know hates obama. so how could all these people be voting for obama? >> in the hours leading up to the election, fox news devoted itself to speculation about romney's win. newt gingrich and others were talking about how big the romney landslide was going to be. gingrich thought it would be 300 electoral votes at least. >> i believe the minimum result will be 53-47 romney, over 300 electoral votes, and the republicans will pick up the senate. >> so are you suggesting that they, a conservative propaganda machine, was
of people do. an online petition to ask texas to withdraw from the united states following president obama's re-election has more than 100,000 signatures. it appears on a section of the white house website called we the people and cites economic difficulties due to the federal government's inability to cut spending. supporters suggest that sus session would protect texans standard of living and resecure their rights and liberties. the leader of the movement tells politico that mr. obama's re-election is what he called a cat liezing moment for his group's efforts to leave the united states. he insists "this is not a reaction to person but policy." and what they see is a federal government disconnected from its constituents. really? so far no response from the white house. even though the number of signatures far surpasses the 25,000 needed for a white house response. for his part, governor perry says he believes in the greatness of our union and nothing should be done to change it although he says he shares the frustrations a lot of americans have with the federal government. texas is ameri
president obama from nominating u.s. ambassador rice from becoming the next secretary of state. >> she has says this was not a pre-planned attack, why was that done? >> reporter: for weeks, the republicans have expressed their anger with rice, urging her to explain the appearances regarding the video and the protest over benghazi. >> this is in response to a hateful video. >> i have grave concerns. answers from ambassador rice before i could support her for any position. >> this president and this administration has either been guilty of colossal incompetent acts or engaged in a cover-up, neither of which are acceptable to the american people. >> reporter: also today, mueller and joyce briefed the top commanders on the scandal involving petraeus. the acting cia director, morrell, was also here for private meetings the big expectation tonight is that petraeus himself will come forward to testify about the benghazi attack, not his own troubles, as early as tomorrow or friday. now there are some differences among republicans about what is the best way to get to the bottom of what happened in
in most states with every personalized document to answer questions. get started at legalzoom.com today. and now you're protected. >>> does president obama's re-election pave the way for the printing presses? thank you richard. we appreciate it at all ways. let me just ask you. if the worst-case scenario comes and taxes go up $500 billion at the end of the year and we go into the recession as the others say, what should, but in your judgement what should the fed do anything about that? >> larry, this is prosecutorly my opinion. but so far we have been trying to stoke recovery with monetary policy. it would be nice to have the fiscal authorities get their act together. there is a limit to what we can do. we can't have a buzz lightyear upontary policy to infinity and beyond. every time we purchase the security. and now it is out to almost eight years. we aren co encumbering those up us. i want the congress to make them. in 449 days, if the case comes about. just to make this harder, say the big tax hike kicks in, the first quarter goes negative, and they don't get a deal together,together
house asking that their states be allowed to secede from the union on the heels of president obama's re-election. one petition from texas has 70,000 signatures. last week, by the way, texas gop official peter morrison wrote a column asking for a, quote, amicable divorce from what he called the maggots, his words, those who re-elected president obama. we'll hear -- well, how about the texas governor, rick perry, by the way, who said this on the issue of secession back in 2009. >> texas is a unique place. when we came in the union in 1845, one of the issues was that we would be able to leave if we decided to do that. we got a great union. there's absolutely no reason to dissolve it, but if washington continues to thumb their nose at the american people, you know, who knows what may come out of that. >> first of all, that's not factually accurate. here's the statement from perry today. in a statement, governor perry believes in the greatness of our union, and nothing should be done to change it. he also shares the frustrations many americans have with our federal government. now more than
, gifts to minorities were not the reason that president obama won the white state of new hampshire, the largely white state of iowa. it's not why he won the hometown of paul ryan, janesville, wisconsin. so there's just a factual issue. but third and biggest, and this is where you heard the louisiana governor, bobby jindal, installed yesterday as the chairman of the republican governors association. this is where you heard him coming in, that republicans say this is a just-doesn't-get-it moment for romney. it makes republicans think that the 47% comment was no slip of the tongue. at his press conference in las vegas yesterday, governor jindal, our reporter, says became visibly agitated about this and said these comments were absolutely wrong. and they come at a time when almost every other leading republican figure is saying the party really needs to look inside itself and change karl rove. in "the wall street journal" today, it's saying the republican party needs to reverse engineer what the obama campaign did in its turnout efforts. senator john cornyn of texas, the head of the se
signed up to break away from the united states. republicans couldn't vote president obama out and secession isn't a realistic option. so they're turning to libya to try to impeach the president. i say, bring it on. the impeachment talk. the american people voted for president obama and his policies. talk of impeachment will only further unite americans around this president. they chose to lead this country. this republican outrage is fantastic. it's good for liberals. because it's only going to motivate us and it's only going to focus us not to have a rewrite of 2010 when it comes to 2014. the midterms. this is, i guess you could say there's no room for an off season in politics these days, is there? for more let's turn to michael tomasky, special correspondent for "newsweek" and the "daily beast." good to have you with us. >> serious as always. >> how serious is this? will impeachment talk backfire on republicans and help the president? what do you think? >> i think it will end up backfiring on them ultimately. you know, in the meantime, ed, this is something to take kind of
's colleague in wisconsin said mitt romney would have absolutely won the state of wisconsin if they had just had some voter i.d. laws. right? president obama won wisconsin with more than 205,000 votes. that's a lot of people to suppress in order to make a sure romney absolutely would win type situation. don't you think? one of the most outrageous post-election comments about minority voters came from the chairman of the state of maine. their republican party up there. charlie webster, he questioned the mere presence of african-american voters at the polls. >> in some parts of the state, for example, in some parts of rural maine, there were dozens, dozens of black people who came in and voted election day. everybody has a right to vote, but nobody in town knows anybody who's black. how did that happen? we don't know. we're going to find out. >> webster tried to explain himself to talking points memo. "when you see a lot of black people, a lot of people who are black like six or eight or ten people you think, wow, where do they live? that was my point. there's nothing about me that would be di
electoral votes, every battleground state with the exception of income, does barack obama now have a mandate? >> i don't think so because they also re-elected the house republicans so what did people intended or not we've got divided government. >> reporter: you don't think there is a mandate here. >> i don't because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. i think these ideas we talked about are popular ideas. this was a close election. we have to make sure it works in the next two years. that means i think both parties have to talk to each other. >> reporter: could you see supporting a plan that raises tax rates? >> i'm not for raising tax rates. >> reporter: you won't support a plan? >> i don't want to get into that but i don't support raising tax rates. i've been saying that my entire career. >> reporter: diane sawyer asked speaker boehner if you were now the leader of the republican party and his answer was, oh, i wouldn't think so, paul ryan is a policy wonk. >> i take that as a great compliment from john. >> reporter: is that your role now, posi
chamber and gave a state of the union address in front of it. >> and the fourth new entitlement, obamacare, we repeal that one and finally get our balance sheet right. >> a message from pretend president romney. >> pretend president romney, ladies and gentlemen. >> up next, not the pretend managing editor of "time" magazine, rick stengel. he's here to reveal the cover of the new issue. we're going to be right back with rick stengel and more. what's next? he's going to apply testosterone to his underarm. axiron, the only underarm treatment for low t, can restore testosterone levels back to normal in most men. axiron is not for use in women or anyone younger than 18. axiron can transfer to others through direct contact. women, especially those who are or who may become pregnant, and children should avoid contact where axiron is applied as unexpected signs of puberty in children or changes in body hair or increased acne in women may occur. report these signs and symptoms to your doctor if they occur. tell your doctor about all medical conditions and medications. do not use if you have pro
ads. the one ad had two senior women cursing we'll burn this mother f.er down if barack obama doesn't win. if you are the president of the united states do you invite the leader of this crew to the white house. >> i don't know who did that ad. >> move on dot who? let me get this out. you characterized. >> bill: you don't want to answer that question by the way. >> i have no problem with inviting move on to the white house. >> bill: even after they did that kind of stuff. >> i don't know who did that kind of stuff. >> bill: move on did it? >> i have to get this out. you said they don't get further left than the people who get invited to the white house. bunch a come mys. groups who want to preserve social security and medicare. they are not far left loons. >> bill: move on was there go ahead, last word. >> the current group of the far left maniacs who are running the country and deliberately destroying the foundational principles of this country are the extreme. they have penetrated the media, the unions, the government. they are in every aspect of running hollywood and the culture.
of targeting the obama campaign did to lgbt voters in the states? >> i don't know. we have all heard that their research shows the votes the same thing we have seen in other national polling places. if you vote lgbt and straight marriage equality is a top motivator and perhaps you can add to that but i think it's something that they saw. there was certainly no price to be paid on this issue and there's a significant case to be made that there was increased excitement amongst the youth vote because of that position in the contrast of that position with the opana. >> the other issues if you look at the lgbt voters and the gallup data, they are disproportionately female, younger and on white. and those are all -- so i looked at the elections and i said would have given those characteristics they voted like the general public did given that they are characteristics and if that happens lgbt vote should be about 56-44, for obama and romney which suggested there something about the lgbt thing that gives obama a 21-point split. i am not saying that is all lgbt, but i think the data suggests
received and beesmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> president obama says that same bass door's rice's remarks will not affect her possible nomination as secretary of state >>> mitt romney held a conference state to explain why he lost the election. he said that the president was very loyal to democratic voters. the campaign focused on giving targeted groups big gift like college loan forgiveness and tree health care and child amnesty which appealed to hispanic voters. >>> a developing story. sheriff deputies shot and killed a man while trying to serve a peace order. karen gray lose ton is live at the scene in east riverdale with the latest. >> reporter: sheriff deputies and really anybody in law enforcement knows that any day they show up be dangerous and that was the case here this evening in this block of 63rd avenue in riverdale. deputies were here to investigate the shooting involving one of their own the deputy, a ten-year vet rant force came to 6312 63rd avenue to serve a temporary peace order or civil protection. a spokesperson for the sheriff's office says that the deputy wa
, to be secretary of state. >> president obama says it is important to find out exactly what happened there but it's outrageous for senator mccain or other republicans to go after miss rice, that it's the president who's responsible, that he should be the one if they want to point fingers or go after anyone. zoraida? >> dan lothian live in washington for us. thank you. >> okay. >>> new developments this morning in "the apprentice" sex scandal leading back to square one. we know the identity of the fbi agent who helped start the investigation that eventually led to the former cia director's resignation. his name is frederick humphries ii, 47 years old and a veteran investigator. also two -- paula broadwell's security clearance is now suspended pending the outcome of the investigation. barbara starr is following developments for us from the pentagon. we're hearing so far there have been no official findings that broadwell broke any laws or engaged in criminal activity. why suspend her security clearance? >> well, you know, fran townsend is reporting just that, john, that all the indications are, fro
is at fault or is she as barack obama said, she was merely passion on intelligence? she was not a key player in all of this, therefore, if he wants to make her secretary of state, he can do it. what do you think? >> first of all, i was substituting for george stephanopoulos that sunday as host of "this week." we were trying to get secretary of state hillary clinton, all of the shows were trying to get secretary of state hillary clinton to talk about benghazi. for whatever reason, she accident go out them put out dr. susan rice are the u.n. ambassador. very interesting that today, president obama says, you know, susan rice had nothing to do with benghazi, i don't know what she was doing on the show. >> didn't she make her safe key player or a person put up by the administration to launch the defense. she could have said, we believe there are a number of possible theory sneers she didn't take that option. >> she was a good soldier did what the administration told her to do. she read the talking points. she had more -- >> did she act in good faith, do you think? >> i can't get inside her brain.
sitting there with president obama, and he asked you for, "what should i say about china in my state of the union message," what advice would you give him? >> say that we the relationship between america and china matters to the entire world because we'll either destroy the world's environment, or have some chance for saving it together. or else, if we don't work together on this, there's no hope. the two most strongly growing economies in the world need to help the world continue to grow and deal with equality and the stability and sort of decency of china as an international player is something only the united states is in the position to effect. it matters to our children if china -- how china uses its power. and so, the greatest stake we have the greatest outside our own borders, the greatest stake we have in the conditions for our children and grandchildren is our relationship with china. >> so this then is a very timely and important book. "china airborne" by james fallows. thank you very much for being with me. >> thank you so much, bill. >> that's it for this week. naomi klei
to minorities, will. iowa is a pretty white state. romney lost to obama. maine, really white. vermont, really white. rhode island, very white. ohio, 79% white. in fact, carol, 72% electorate who voted were white. so when romney says oh, minorities got gifts, women got gifts, young voters got gifts, mitt, you wanted to give gifts to the rich. the fact of the matter is that these are americans. these were policies. this is a clueless guy who ignored hispanics, ignored black folks and he paid the price. and thank goodness he lost for stupid comments like this. >> can i respond to that, carol, please? >> absolutely. >> here is the deal. roland is right that mitt romney, if he said -- i'm not sure he said he lost exclusively for these reasons. >> that was a quote. >> hold on, roland. >> that was a quote. >> you point out many areas where this wouldn't have been applicable. this was a quote from mitt romney, with regards to young people, for instance, forgiveness of college loan str tr was a big gift, free contraceptives were very big with college age women. anybody now 26 years of age or younger i

. neither is your name. obama, 25,000 secession petitions, looks up confederate states on wikipedia. here is the best tweet of the day. if i can find it. well, more or less, the point is people are wondering why are john mccain and lindsey graham flogging susan rice and making a point out of this whole benghazi thing? what's it about? here's what it's all about my friends. the fact that they want scott brown back in the senate. they don't want susan rice to be secretary of state. you know what they want to be secretary of state? john kerry. and we know that you know, this is from anastacia who writes this. these two men are trying to get scott brown back in the senate and trashing susan rice to get kerry as secretary of state. i could not agree more, ans at a sha. the liberals are all afraid if you make john kerry john kerry secretary of state scott brown he's sitting there in his truck in massachusetts, he's got a big fund raising apparatus he's ready to campaign. he has the ground organization ready. and he wi

for the united states. the israeli ambassador to the u.s. is keeping president obama informed of what's taking place. our white house correspondent brianna keilar is at the white house watching all of this unfold. what is the president doing, brianna, about this really dangerous escalation in the region? >> reporter: wolf, officially the white house is condemning the violence. it's urging israel to not have civilian casualties while also walking the line of putting forth its long standing support for israel to defend itself. but behind the scenes there is urgent diplomacy underway. both on the part of president obama and dpoeks here at the white house and also secretary of state hillary clinton. the u.s. obviously doesn't have leverage with hamas, but it does have leverage with some countries that have leverage with hamas. turkey of course, egypt, qatar and because of that president obama today for instance called turkish prime minister to talk about this. two days ago he talked to egyptian president morsi in addition to talking to prime minister netanyahu. and egypt key of course because of i
red state.com, you live in a bubble where reality rarely seeps in and obama is always one shadow away from the scandal that will end his presidency in disgrace. but there's a civil war under way in the alternate reality right now, the truth is trying to invade. there are strong forces working to repel it. there are people i'll call realists who recognize that change must occur or more electoral thumpings will happen. david frum is a leader of this group warning that the right wing media cabal can no longer be allowed to lead the party. >> the conservative followership has been fleeced, exploited and lived to by the conservative entertainment complex. >> bill crystal showed his maturity by saying compromise is valuable. >> it won't kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires. it really won't i don't think. i don't really understand why respects don't take obama's offer. >> and seen sean hannity has gotten involved. >> i think you control the border first. you create a pathway for those people that are here. you don't say you got to go home. and that is a position th
, beginning with the state department saying it was a terrorist attack. president obama said it was a video. susan rice said the same thing. there is a lot of smoke that should be cleared up. host: ronald kessler, written several pieces about all of this. thank you for being here. the debates over avoiding the so-called fiscal cliff with evan bayh. then we will discuss global reaction to president obama's second term. but first in news update. guest: more on the david petraeus story. the agent that launched the investigation was barred from taking part in the case over the summer because of concerns that he was personally involved in the case. the agent continued to press the matter and relate his concerns to a member of congress. congress returns today and will try to work out how to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. refers to tax increases and spending cuts to defense and domestic problgrams. the issue may not be resolved by year's end. pretty much everyone will be affected if there is no deal. it could throw the economy back into recession and cost no income families about $2,000 more ne
to have those hundreds of offices all over the key states in ohio and elsewhere because they wouldn't have the money to open them and the republican nominee will be sitting there with substantially more super pac support. just because this time obama as an incumbent was able to spend them to a draw should not suggest that that's what happens next time. >> i read in a couple of places that by the week of the election president obama had attended 221 fund raisers, far more than any other incumbent president in our history in 24 states and the time that is used to raise this money has to figure into our reckoning of its impact, right? >> this is a disaster for the country, this being the fact that we don't have presidential public funding and instead we have the incumbent president of the united states spending that much time out trying to raise money for his campaign instead of worrying about the economy, national affairs and international affairs. you may recall one of the debates romney went after obama saying that after the libyan incident you left washington and you went to nevada. that
insurance could benefit from the medicaid expansion that president obama's affordable care act would provide because in louisiana, more than 68% of those medicaid recipients are poor children. but you'd much rather lead 15 other states in massive resistance against so-called big government and tell your constituents good luck in the private sector. speaking of the private sector, seems like you'd also like to sell off our kids' education to the highest bidder. that educational voucher system you established the largest one in the country that gives vouchers to religious schools that teach creationism and allows them to keep their state funding even if their students fail basic reading and math tests, that one? we're not fooled. this is not about reform. it is about as the interfaith alliance wrote your inability to distinguish between religious indom trin nation and basic public education. and you think you might be just a little bit more suspicious of the whole private sector equals public good equation in the week when bp pled guilty to 14 criminal charges in connection with the deepwater
full news conference at the white house in eight months, president obama raced to the defense of his u.n. ambassador susan rice. republicans vowed to block her from becoming the next secretary of state. >> for them to go after the-up ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi and simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> five days after the terror attack in libya, rice went on five sunday talk shows to say the early intelligence suggested that the assault was a spontaneous reaction to an anti-muslim video. >> who in the white house, who was president of the united states, was it one of his people? who was it that gave her talking points that clearly indicateed something for which there was no basis if facts? >> reporter: earlier today, republican senator john mccain joined lindsey graham and kelly ayotte vowing to stop rice's potential nomination as secretary of state. while the president would not speculate about his choice to replace outgoing secretary hillary clinton, he reacted angrily to the republican
between the white house and the state department. the white house saying well, you know, requests about diplomatic security don't really go through us. that's more through the state department. and then there was tension there and then when obama was asked about it, you know, do you stand with secretary clinton you know yeah the buck stops with me. every time you go into the details it always goes that would have been handled by the intelligence community. that's under investigation. it never -- exactly. >> bill: it's all under investigation. but here is -- i'm saying this with all due respect how big a fraud this is. if i'm in the washington press corps you know this press conference is a lot different than that because i basically say, mr. president, i'm a simple man, you know, i always start it with that to be humble. when did you know about -- president, when did you know about cia cia director petraeus' situation. what day? what hour did you know? if he dose it's under investigation i can't tell you. i go oh phooey phooey. that doesn't impede on any investigation. it's a question b
are in states that voted for president obama in the last election. you see how different the election might have turned out had ohio, florida, nevada, colorado, some of those states gone for mitt romney. they're talking about the economy. they're talking the unemployment rate is 1% lower in those states that have gop governors. louisiana governor bobby jindal yesterday talked about the economy and the success the gop governors are having. >> you look at what other governors are doing to lower their unemployment rates. for example, john kasich in ohio and rick scott in florida, they're improving the private sector economies. republican governors have great experience when they pursue tough policies and tough choices not for austerity sake. it is a prosperity agenda. >> reporter: a lot of people are talking about bobby jindal a rising star and possible candidate in the 2016, gregg. gregg: dan, the presidential raise is probably coming up in this meeting as well, right? >> reporter: it certainly is. there is a lot of hand-wringing, a lot of talk about why the gop, why mitt romney did not win at the
obama the big margin. >> in some parts of rural maine, there are dozens of plaque people who came in to vote but nobody in tune flu them. >> what would that be, the united states of caucasia. >> who is going to give them things? president obama. >> give them extraordinary financial gifts from the gift. >> it's absolutely wrong. i don't think that of that represents where we are as a party and where we're going. >> this picture before you is worth millions of votes. >> i love you women. >> what actually can republicans do to win votes? >> they have to frame their arguments through the prism of the vagina. >> let's get right to our panel. krystal ball is my colleague. michael scherer is white house correspondent for "time" magazine and msnbc contributor goldie taylor is with us, too. krystal, i'm not a gynecologist so i'm not going to look at things through that particular prism. but please tell me what you think of this line from the romney tapes. are you ready for it? >> i'm ready. >> okay. here it is. free contraceptives were very big with young college-aged women. the man is a g
familiar with what kind of targeting the obama campaign did to the lgbt voters in the state? >> i don't know. i think we have all heard that their research showed the boat which is the same thing we have seen in other polling. huge votes in lgbt and straight. marriage equality is a top motivator. perhaps you could add to that but i think it's something that they saw. there was certainly no price to be paid for his position on marriage equality and there's a significant case to be made that there was increased excitement among these voters. because of that position in the contrast to that position with his opana. >> if you look at lgbt voters in the gallup data, they are disproportionately female, younger and nonwhite. those are all obama consistencies so i said what if given those characteristics they voted like the general public did, given that their race and aging characteristics and if that happens the lgbt vote should be about 56-44 for obama and romney, which suggest there is something about the lgbt thing that gives obama a 21-point swing. and i'm not saying that is all lgbt, b
in the united states hoped it would, and i think a recognition, and evolution by president obama away from the kind of discussion of nation-building that marked the 2008 campaign where he basically said nation-building is not our mission. and when you make that kind of statement, then it raises the question, how are you going to get beyond the 1% in developments and foreign-aid that paul describes? there was a proposal in washington in 2009, early 2010 to combine the development, diplomacy, and defense budgets together and allow an administration that came up largely between secretary gates and clinton, allow the administration, and the administration to move that money so that your initial instinct was not necessarily trying to be a military solution to every problem. of course it ran up immediately against congressional committees that are responsible for certain budgets. also, just a concern about whether or not that would affect the mix in a way many people, i think in washington were not comfortable with it. the idea died. might be time to bring it back. >> and abel comment on several
